The show will go on for Oklahoma City Ballet, yet we will closely follow the rules set forth by the Civic Center Music Hall. If you are attending The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, please be aware of the COVID-19 safety protocol. Also follow Oklahoma City Ballet on social media for updates.

Social Distancing

If you have a party of four (4) or more, please expect to be split into two (2) or more groups. Since we don’t know if your party consists of different households, we have to do our part in keeping groups socially distanced.
Expect to have two seats between you and other parties.

Box Seats

If you have Box Seats, you can expect to stay in the box unless it is already full.

No paper tickets

Expect to have digital delivery of your tickets via email. Please download the tickets to your smartphone and use it at the theater. Tickets printed at home will not be accepted by the Civic Center. More information on mobile tickets can be found at the Civic Center’s website:

If you do not have email, or wish to forgo digital delivery, please contact the Oklahoma City Ballet Box Office and we will provide tickets to you at the Will Call line at the Civic Center.

No printed programs

To ensure safety of our guests and to save vital funds this year, Oklahoma City Ballet will not print a booklet program like past years, but we will provide a QR code instead. The QR code can be scanned with a smartphone and guide you to our website, where we will have casting lists and links to dancer biographies
